At last year's Shanghai Auto Show, Lincoln showed off their vision for the second generation MkX. Now, we finally see the real thing after pictures and details have leaked out ahead of its formal debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Tuesday.

Most of the exterior has carried over from the concept. The now Lincoln trademark bow wave grill gives rise to perhaps the most bejeweled headlights ever seen on the production Lincoln. The headlight appearance comes from full adaptive HIDs with available LED strips. The strong belt lines of the sides of the MkX Concept have also been carried over.

Unlike the clamshell rear of the smaller MkC, the MkX features a more conventional rear liftgate. The full rear light-stripe has also carried over.

Power for the MkX will come from an available 2.7L V6 EcoBoost engine. Though not confirmed yet, we believe the base engine will be the 2.3L EcoBoost. Like the MkC, the MkX will likely have an all-EcoBoost engine lineup.

An important piece missing from the MkX concept was the... [Read More]

Lincoln's Shanghai dealership, up-close and personal

Dec 09, 2014 - 5:21 AM - by paul8488
While we have all seen pictures of the new concept for Lincoln dealerships in China, it's always nice to visit and person and see how it translates to real life. I was able to get there last weekend for a visit, and come away very impressed. After seeing the photos and reading about Lincoln's China concept I knew they were onto something, and the showroom shows very well...



The Lincoln store isn't in a particularly busy or automotive area, but has decent visibility from an elevated roadway in front. What's refreshing is how simple and elegant the design of the building is; in general, the Chinese aren't known for their architectural restraint, so this store is pleasing to the eyes. I'm not sure if this dark brown is a Lincoln 'thing', but it works very well, both inside and out.



Before I even got to the building I saw three transport trucks full of MKZs and MKCs being unloaded! This is the first time I've seen either in the flesh, and there was a whole range of colours. I know some love and some hate these... [Read More]

VIDEO: 2015 Mustang First Drive

Improving an icon
by Mike Schlee

Someone must be spiking the drinking water around the Detroit area with a combination of Red Bull, methanol and epinephrine. What else can explain the onslaught of American sports cars coming out of Michigan lately?

Last year Chevrolet introduced the world class C7 Corvette Stingray while also creating the most track-focused muscle car of all time: the Camaro Z/28. Over at Dodge, a hydrogen bomb was lobbed into the horsepower wars with the introduction of the 707-hp Challenger Hellcat. Mopar fans looking for a bit more style and a few more cylinders, theres good news as the sinister Viper is still available.
A Legend Reborn

Meanwhile at Ford, a pair of ST hothatches are redefining front-wheel drive performance. But thats not the biggest news coming out of Dearborn. No, this year an automotive icon is being born anew: the Ford Mustang.

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the Mustang, which is quite an achievement. Not often does one nameplate survive a half-century in existence, especially one that has stuck to the same basic formula the whole time. But with sales
